When you purchase a home, banks want you to put down 20% of the purchase price. If you don’t have 20% of the purchase price, there are ways to still purchase a home. You can have two loans and only put down 5%. One of the loans will be for 80% and the other will likely have a higher interest rate but will be for the other 15%.
Another way to purchase a home without the full 20% down is to find a property that will accept an FHA loan. These types of loans have a few more requirements for the borrower, but you will be able to purchase a home with only 3.5% as a down payment if you have a FICO® credit score of at least 580. FHA loans also require a debt-to-income ratio less than 43% and income and employment verification. Your loan officer will let you know all of the other qualifications you will need, but the property will also have to pass a more rigorous FHA inspection.
If you have 20% or more to put down on the purchase of your first or next home, you may qualify for some of our historically low interest rates. Banks look at how much debt you have, what your income level is, what assets you have, and more to determine your interest rate for a loan.
